I am writing an app, which takes a STL file as input. I want to get volume of the stl object without saving the stl file and use the volume to calculate a quote and post it back to browser. Right now I am using
numpy-stl package, but I am stuck on how to create a mesh object for numpy-stl from the file I get with
request.files['file'].read(). Any help is appreciated.
You can try the following code:
import io filedata = request.files['file'].read() data = io.BytesIO(filedata) tmp_mesh = mesh.Mesh.from_file("tmp.stl", fh=data)
You can use tmp_mesh object to do you interesting operation
suggestion to add error handle on something not expected
- if request.files not contain ‘file’ keys
